In fact, many Linux experts think that btrfs is one of the keys to the future of Linux. While btrfs is not quite ready to be your only file system, it is in the kernel ready for testing and is still undergoing very heavy development. In this article we will introduce the key features of btrfs find out how it compares to existing file systems."

That depends on what type you mean. If you spell it out like b-t-r, it becomes "be". If you pronounce it "btr", it becomes "bu".

No, it becomes BetterFS or BitterFS (bee-tee-are-eff-ess). I dont know how the dutch pronounces B but in English there are no circumstances where the letter B is pronounced "bu".

You're missing Thom's point as you're still sounding out each letter rather than trying to read the letters collectively as a word.

Plus you're not taking dialects into account.
Many northern accents would sound "B" as "Bu" even when reading the letter out individually.
